Deputy Chapman was shot and killed while he and his partner were on a stakeout for two robbery suspects who had been robbing couples. The officers were sitting in their police car near Walnut Hill and Midway Road when the two suspects drove past them, turned around, and returned to the car. One of the suspects got out of the car and approached the officers with his gun drawn. A shootout ensued and Deputy Chapman and one of the suspects were both fatally wounded. The other officer was also wounded but able to take the second suspect into custody. That suspect was convicted of murder and executed in 1935.
